As seen in the Sunshine Coast Daily Life & Style Magazine


Little compares to the thrill of a road trip. Windows down, fresh breeze ripping through the car, as you belt out your favourite ballads – no doubt out of tune, but no one cares, adventure awaits!

Thinking of your travel companions, specifically what you’ll be wearing. There’s one accessory that screams ROAD TRIP louder than the songs you’re singing. An expedition loving, fun-seeking, sun-shielding essential, that no journey should ever be lacking. A hat! This one piece alone captures the feeling of freedom entirely.

For hat lack-ers, finding the perfect hat isn’t always so easy. Rather than add to your collection of incompatible hats, it’s time we found something suitable. Jump in, we’re going to Rye, Victoria to have a chat to Lauren from Aussie hat label Will & Bear.

According to Lauren, when looking for the right style of headwear, it’s important to consider your hat needs. Are you looking for an everyday hat? Or a travel companion? “The right style will suit your lifestyle,” she said.
